Monarch’s

The previous owner of our house which we bought about a year and a half ago had planted the front to encourage monarch butterfly’s to lay eggs etc. Last year we were too occupied with other things to really take notice of it but we were pleased to see a few butterfly’s around the house.

This February I was able to stop and look and see that we had quite a ‘crop’ of caterpillars on the plants which was nice to see. I was able to snap some decent pictures.

Garden wildlife

while I was working in the garden this weekend, I was excited by this little fella who decided to visit and hunt for a while.

I quickly ran in to get a camera; my Pen-F Digital in this case, which had the kit zoom lens attached.  It’s an auto-focus lens which allowed me to get close enough but I really struggled to get it to focus on the insect rather than the background.  Luckily, he hung around for a while and I was able to make several attempts.   Continue reading “Garden wildlife”

Tujunga Wash – blackened from the fires

The Tajunga Wash is an area close to where I live.  It’s combined with Oro Vista Park and Ebey Canyon with housing bordering.

I shared a picture of this area recently here.

I took a longer walk around this area last week and explored a little too.  Of course I had a camera with me; this time my Olympus Pen-F Digital.  We’ve been living here for six months and this was the first time I had really explored the wash and the park other than a couple of shorter dog walks.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
